I haven’t reviewed Chococurb in a while, so I was happy when they recently offered to send me October’s box. Yay, chocolate!
Chococurb hand selects 5 to 7 treats from the top chocolatiers in the world to be included in each box. The folks at Chococurb believe that chocolate is more than just food – it’s an experience to be enjoyed and shared. That’s why they only include the finest treats, made by the best brands. They also have a shop on their site, so if you discover a new chocolate you’d like more of, you can buy it right from there.
Subscriptions are $35/month, or less with multi-month commitments.
Let’s see what’s in the October 2015 Chococurb box!
The box! They used to send a separate box within a box, and while I did like the sturdy inner box, it’s definitely more eco-friendly (and cost effective) to just use the one.
A look inside!
As always, there wasn’t an actual info card included. Instead, they sent a note about their mission to help everyone “discover extraordinary chocolate”.
The Grenada Chocolate Company Organic Dark Chocolate Nib-a-Licious Bar ($7.99) – This 100% organic dark chocolate bar is dairy, gluten, and nut free. It’s made with 60% cocoa and contains crispy cocoa nibs for a satisfying crunch. Mmm!
Rococo Chocolates Milk Chocolate Sea Salt, Almond, & Rosemary Bar ($10) – I was kinda bummed to see that this bar was made with milk chocolate since the flavor combo sounds SO good. It’s made with organic, fair trade ingredients and features a blend of sea salt, almonds, and rosemary in (40% cocoa) milk chocolate.
Woodblock Chocolate Manufactory 70% Dark Chocolate Bar ($4) – This dark chocolate bar hails from Portland, OR and is made with 70% cocoa. It contains just two ingredients: cacao and cane sugar.
Ethereal Confections Handcrafted Inclusion Chocolate Bar ($7.50) – How pretty is this chocolate bar?! It’s handcrafted with 66% cacao and topped with strawberries, rose petals, and pink peppercorns. It’s almost too pretty to eat! Almost.
Treehouse Chocolate Co. Cherrywood Sea Salt Drinking Chocolate ($3) – A premium drinking chocolate made with 72% cacao and Jacobsen cherrywood smoked sea salt. I imagine this has a rich, decadent flavor, but since it contains milk, I’ll never know. Wahhhh! 😉
Pacari Raw Chocolate Bar (~$1?) – This minimally processed bar is made with fine Ecuadorian cacao and kept at low temperatures to maintain the antioxidants and complex flavor profile of the natural cacao.
Chococurb is a great subscription for chocolate lovers who enjoy exploring new brands and unique flavors. The total retail value of the box was just under $34, which is right around the cost of the month-to-month subscription. However, if you bought all of the chocolates on your own, you’d have to pay shipping on each one, so it works out in your favor in the end. Plus, it’s more fun to receive a surprise package of chocolate delivered to your door each month. 😉
What do the stars mean?
★ = Crummy ★★ = Just Okay ★★★ = Good ★★★★ = Awesome ★★★★★ = Extraordinarily Awesome
